Subject:        Citing Quartos

Hi,

Does anyone know of an edition of the Pied Bull quarto of King Lear
which uses through-line numbering?  The Internet Shakespeare Edition
uses TLN, but the Folio's, which is handy for cross-reference, but makes
for some strange citations when the quarto includes lines that the folio
does not or vice-versa.  The Clarendon facsimile uses line numbers that
refer to the Globe edition of 1893, which, again, can make for strange
citations.  Does anyone know of a citation system for the first quarto
which is proper to the quarto itself?

If not, I'll just go ahead with making references using both the
Clarendon and the Internet Shakespeare Editions methods together.  Can
anyone suggest a better way to cite this text?

Cheers,
Se
